Each month we focus on an Author/Illustrator of children's books. We have studied Eric Carle, Robert Munsch, Mem Fox, Dr. Suess, Max Lucado, and Audrey Penn to name a few! The books written by the author will sometimes coincide with the surrounding themes and seasons to give the children a better understanding of the topics that are discussed. We love diving into an author's style and branching out with our curriculum and lesson planning with ideas inspired by their wonderful stories.
Children who have a broad foundation of knowledge and a background on a variety of subjects will find school and learning easier and more interesting than those who do not. At ALL-STARS we cover a broad spectrum of themes and travel deep and wide into each one making learning fun - covering all areas of development - for a greater understanding of the content.
Children's learning is reflected in the way they respond to environmental, social, emotional and physical stimuli, to understand new information. A learning style is defined as the way the information is processed, focusing on strengths, not weaknesses. Most children show a preference for one of the following basic learning styles: visual, auditory, or kinesthetic / manipulative. We believe that learning is best achieved when all learning styles are exercised especially since there is no right or wrong learning style!
Above all else - conversing with the children about their experiences, dreams, interests and viewpoints helps the children feel secure, and gives them a sense of value and self-respect. Engaging with the children and captivating their attention also lessens the chance for misbehavior.
We offer fabulous enrichment opportunities for all of the children. Field trip opportunities, computer classes, dance classes, guests speakers, workshops, Scholastic book clubs, homework club for school-age children, family parties and events, recitals and a formal "cap and gown" graduation are among the favorites.
